A world running on green energy will limit climate change, improve human health, and create economic growth.
But the pursuit of this vision must take place sustainably.
Society faces the challenge of the need for more energy, but also the need to reduce climate change.
At Ørsted, we believe the energy we consume should not only come from renewable resources, but should be built, operated and distributed in a sustainable way. We are working towards an energy system that´s entirely green.
Our transformation from black to green energy means we are facing different challenges today than we did a decade ago. We acknowledge that all modes of energy generation have a potential bearing on society and the environment. We take this potential impact seriously.
Working towards solutionsWe work to address societal challenges to ensure sustainable green growth.
The conversion of our coal plants to biomass means we are stopping the use of coal and that we use certified, sustainable biomass.
We protect biodiversity when building offshore wind farms. The delicate ecosystems surrounding our projects need to be protected for the survival of unique fauna and flora. Our biodiversity policy ensures we achieve this.
In the communities where we operate, we strive to meet the needs and expectations of the local population, and to be a positive influence on society.
We promote sustainable environmental practices in our operations. By improving energy efficiency and the reuse and recycling of waste, together we achieve best practice and help to improve standards in the industry.
